I'm in hopes that someone might be familiar with the yarn used in the following scarf:

This scarf has been posted on www.michaels.com in the showcase section by "Jennifer in Toronto, Ontario". I love the scarf, however, I haven't been able figure out what yarn was used to make it.

I would appreciate any help.

Thanks!

She says she used an acrylic/wool blend to crochet the scarf. She doesn't say if she striped it herself or if it was self striping or what. There are dozens of yarns that fall into that category. The main one that comes to my mind is Plymouth Encore. The colors are gorgeous and it's nice to work with. I buy mine at my local yarn store (LYS).

I'm not sure, but the yarn looks like it's from Lion Brand. Maybe that helps. Good luck finding it.
